Argosy Cruises

Our History

Who are we?

A family-owned and Seattle-operated business that has become the largest premiere boat tour company in the Northwest. Founded as Spring Street Water Taxi, we have taken our final form and become Argosy Cruises!

We offer must-see tourist attractions, like Seattle’s Original Harbor Cruise™, host countless social parties and corporate events, and put on community activities, including the annual Christmas Ship™ Festival and other holiday events.

It’s a privilege to come to work every day on Seattle’s picturesque waterfront. Building relationships with all the beautiful people who ride our ferry, as well as the employees and owners of our neighboring businesses, is pure joy.

I like the small company size at Argosy and working for a company that knows who I am. I love being on the water daily. I enjoy the educational aspect of the job when giving tours. Working on boats appeals to similar kinds of people so I really have fun with my coworkers.

I enjoy everyone’s commitment to provide a great experience to our guests. This is why we work so well as a team. Captains, crew and engineering have all stepped up to help me. Every department appreciates the other and helps more.

There are many things about Argosy Cruises I care about [like] learning and growth, constantly adapting. [It] allowed me to share my compassions [that] aligned with Argosy, giving me a chance [to] share my native culture and learn everything within the company. I’ll leave you with this: In my culture there’s no phrase for goodbye in my language. We say “ndm-al-gyik-niidzn” “Sa’aaml-waan” translates to “until we meet again.”

There is never a boring day at Argosy. It’s super busy in the summer which makes the work days fly. Spending every day on the water is one of my favorite things about the job other than tour guiding and my co-workers. I’ve learned about bartending and how fun it is and more about boats. Its a blast working with the people here and getting to spend time on the water!

I love sharing the best of the Pacific Northwest with our guests from around the country and world. Whether it’s the stunning scenery out on the water, knowledge shared by our tour guides, or delicious local beverages and snacks, I take pride in the unmatched experience that our entire team
provides for our guests.
